    Concentric training


    My question is how often can you do it. I'm talking about sled pushes/pulls, big tire flips, sledgehammer work stuff like that right now I do it once a week and I find it really helps the recovery process after a heavy leg day. Is it possible to train your legs eccentrically once a week and then concentrically 3x a week without overtraining or is that pushing it? And when I say concentric I'm talking about like 9 sets total for the day cause heavy prowler pushes will make you lose your lunch.

    I'll defer to rodja and zir on this but I do prowler pushes on off days - twice a week with no effect on recovery...

    how often you do conditioning depends on your fitness level, goals, intensity, and total volume.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    I don't see why you couldn't. Maybe not with the heavy tire flips as they require more CNS activation than a prowler push, but the sled work absolutely.
